Shout out to those who still have Psyence Fiction on CD
James Lavelle played his first DJ set at 14, launched pioneering record label Mo'Wax at 18 and made the genre-defining UNKLE album Psyence Fiction at 22. His phenomenally rapid rise seemed limitless, but it's only when you're going so fast that the wheels fall off. Now, 20 years after the release of Psyence Fiction, The Man from Mo'Wax tells the incredible story of one of the most enigmatic yet influential figures in contemporary British culture.
An entertaining and insightful look at the ups and downs of the music business, The Man from Mo'Wax is a must for anyone who enjoys music documentaries, whatever their musical taste. For Mo’Wax fans, this package is the ultimate collector's item.
Following its UK-wide cinema release via Trafalgar Releasing and ourscreen on 31 August 2018, the film will be released on Blu-ray/DVD by the BFI on 10 September in a numbered, Limited Edition (3,000 units) 3-disc set (1 x Blu-ray and 2 x DVD) with stunning bespoke packaging that contains a 48-page book featuring rare photos and artwork by Futura, 3D and others, director and producer notes and a foreword by James Lavelle. A massive six hours of extras feature extended interviews with James Lavelle and DJ Shadow, two audio commentaries and much more (details on page 2).
A 2-disc DVD 'Psy-Fi Edition' (titled in recognition of the 20th anniversary of UNKLE's seminal album) will be available exclusively from HMV in-store and online, also on 10 September. The film's soundtrack will be released by Island Records/UMC on 2LP coloured vinyl and CD and will be available for download and streaming (31 August).
